Professor Sargent's Japanese Camellia is a medium-sized shrub that typically grows to a height of 8 to 10 and a width of 6 to 8 feet. This plant is suitable for USDA hardiness zones 7 to 9 and thrives in partial shade to dappled sunlight. It prefers moist, well-draining, acidic soil rich in organic matter. The camellia is relatively low-maintenance, requiring only occasional pruning to maintain its shape and size. It is often used as a specimen plant, foundation planting, or in mixed borders, adding a touch of elegance and charm to any garden.
The most remarkable feature of the Professor Sargent Japanese Camellia is its dazzling flowers. These blooms appear from late winter to early spring, providing a burst of color when the rest of the garden is still dormant. The flowers are large, up to 4 inches in diameter, and feature semi-double to double, deep red petals arranged in a stunning, peony-like formation. The blooms contrast beautifully with the dark green foliage, creating an eye-catching display in the garden.

The leaves are glossy, dark green, and elliptical in shape, providing a lush backdrop for the vibrant blooms. The evergreen nature of this camellia means that it provides year-round color and interest, even when not in bloom.
